It doesn't crash anymore, but there are regressions.
On the plus side - some transport streams that used to crash/hang at the
end with -vc ffmpeg12vdpau are now OK.
Playing dvd from disc without -cache 8192 is still problematic. This
only affects vdpau decode, xvmc was and still is OK.
With the patch I get an assert rather than a hang/crash.
mplayer: vl/vl_vlc.h:138: vl_vlc_eatbits: Assertion `vlc->valid_bits >=
although -cache xxxx mostly works around it. I can still rarely trigger
it by doing a lot of skipping forward/back.
With the patch and vdpau decode on some streams there is occasional
corruption where a few of the bottom right macroblocks render as solid
The next issue affects xvmc as well as vdpau - performance is quite
severely reduced. Looking at top it seems that less Cpu is used with the
patch, but fps is 50-60% worse - meaning with vdpau decode I can't even
play some 30fps HD with my card on high, these would normally be OK on
In addition with vdpau decode I get some 1/4 - 1/2 second stalls when
testing HD (this was in benchmark mode so I don't think it's just
because I haven't got the perf to reach fps).
